I am gay, and I have no shame in admitting it, and my parents and my partner’s parents are okay with our relationship. The only people who have some issues with this are the counselors at OCMC. I mentioned that I was gay and the torrent of questions which flowed after that was absolutely shocking….Who molested me? Do I have sex my any other man? Do I get the urge to have sex anytime? When did it start?....and numerous other questions like that.

I was shocked, and I answered everything in the best possible manner. The counselor went ahead and told her superior that I was gay. The superior’s reaction was even more shocking….same questions but with more twists…

I was pretty frustrated, and I decided to leave AMA. I do not think these people have any knowledge to treat anything, forget about addressing my problems. OCMC would do better if they fired these stupid hillbillies!!!!

Drove down to Ouachita County Medical Center ER last night for getting some stitches on my hand after a freak accident left me with a deep gash.

The ER team was quick. The registration was done quickly. The nurse took me in within 10 minutes. I might have waited for 15 minutes before I was called back to the room. The doctor was beside me within minutes. He inspected the wound, cleaned it up and then put stitches within a few minutes. I was given a shot, and I was walking out of the ER within 90 minutes.

Might be the fastest ER visit. The best ER staff ever encountered.

The staff at Ouachita County Medical Center rocks….I was brought via ambulance for a relapse of my medical condition. The staff did not waste time in getting me registered and then starting treatment. They were on top of everything. The nurses and doctors were caring and helpful. I had to stay there for two days and not once did I feel that I needed to shift my care somewhere else. Keep it going, folks

They were wonderful to her as well as me. The excellent staff made sure that my wife was comfortable during her stay here. They did not give us anything to complain against

Had to visit the OCMC emergency room because I was having diarrhea and there were rashes all over my body. I was running between the bathroom and my bed. When I felt that I was not able to control it, I decided to seek medical help.

I visit this ER and tell the nurse my problem, and I am taken in. After a quick wait period, I was taken back to the room. What does the doctor prescribe – Pepcid. I was scratching my head on how it would work. I asked the doctor, and he said it was indigestion. Needless to say, I left without filling the script.

I got admitted to another hospital and had to stay there for a few days due to a severe allergic reaction as well as dehydration. So much for Pepcid….
